The Power Photonics and Applications group, led by Dr Yoonchan Jeong, explores the outer reaches of photonics science and technology, especially, in high-power and high-energy regimes. Our research focuses on developing innovative lasers and photonic systems and providing novel and powerful solutions to related applications.
Our main research interests include: generation of high-power / high-energy photons; photon-photon / photon-electron / photon-phonon energy conversions; photon-molecule interactions; and many interesting related applications, such as lidar, laser sonar, remote sensing, space optical communication, display, nano-biomedical applications, etc.
The group is also collaborating in aesthetical applications of photonics technologies into art, e.g. technology textiles.
